STERNE, KESSLER, GOLDSTEIN & FOX FORMS STEM CELL TASK FORCE
Publishes a series on developments in stem cell patenting.
In keeping with our tradition of providing intellectual property (IP) counsel to those working in
leading edge technologies, our firm formed in the Autumn of 2004, a Stem Cell Task Force. The
Task Force, which is staffed by firm members with experience in the IP of stem cells, is staying
abreast of legal and policy developments, and has defined, as its principal mission, to keep our
clients and friends informed and up to date in this exciting field.
One way we are keeping you informed as developments occur is through a series are informative
pieces penned by members of the firm. Stem Cells - California's Proposition 71, a summary of
the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Act and Stem Cells - The Patent Landscape were
the first two in the series and were published earlier this year. The attached, Stem Cells - Patent
Pools to the Rescue? is the third in the series. If you are interested in one or both of the earlier
publications, you can access them on our website at www.skgf.com or feel free to contact us.
